Toxic substances are found everywhere - in the water, air, ground, and the walls of people’s homes. Chemical plants, refineries, factories, railroad yards, electrical towers, transformers, landfills, mines, shipyards, hospitals, and lakes and streams have all become sources for toxicity.

Homes insulated with asbestos, painted with lead-based paint or walls that are growing mold from water damage, can be a source of toxins that, over the years, result in permanent and irreversible health conditions. The fact that the adverse effects of toxic exposure may not be evident for many years makes toxic tort cases a challenge to prove.

Well-known examples of toxic tort litigation that in recent years have come into public view are cases involving exposure to asbestos, groundwater contamination, second-hand smoke, pharmaceutical drugs, and radiation experiments on human subjects.

The types of significant injury that specific toxic substances have caused include:

  • Asbestos - lung cancer, respiratory and gastrointestinal disease
  • Lead-based paint - brain damage, especially in children
  • Radiation and electromagnetic energy - leukemia and other cancers
  • Toxic mold - respiratory illness, digestive tract illnesses, cancer, lupus, TB
  • Tobacco - lung cancer, respiratory illness

While proving that toxins have resulted in an illness may be difficult, the burden of proof in a toxic tort lawsuit is much less than in a criminal case.
